Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms impact 200,000 to 300,000 patients each year, with up to 10% of these cases ending in a fatality.
That’s why it’s important to be aware of signs and symptoms and to schedule an exam if you are concerned—especially if a relative has suffered an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, as this condition tends to be common in family medical histories.
The good news for patients is that the exam we offer at our Vascular Lab locations is simple and non-invasive. VSA’s team of highly trained vascular technologists perform approximately 900 of these examinations per year.
If your test reveals an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, our physicians at VSA have over 100 years of combined experience in aneurysm repair. In consultation with the patient, we will determine if open surgical repair or Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) is your best treatment option, and perform all the necessary tests and procedures at the same practice location.
